I recently had the opportunity to attend a morning of pampering featuring Nuance, a beauty line created by Salma Hayek and sold at CVS Pharmacy. You can see my coverage of the event here. I took home a few of the items from the product line and was surprised at the quality and especially how much I enjoyed their skincare line. When they contacted me to put on a party for some girlfriends to introduce them to the line I jumped at the chance. After all my friends will agree that when I like a brand EVERYONE knows about it. 😉
I created three pampering stations to introduce them to all Nuance had to offer: nails, facials and makeup.
The nail station proved to be a favorite as it allowed for wonderful conversation as we all got to choose what trendy colors to paint our nails. I am usually a red or pink girl but I decided to choose something a tad more daring and ended up with a teal green color called Prickly Pear. The thick consistency ensured that this polish stays put and lasts a LONG time. I am still enjoying my manicure with NO chipping a week later. For a mom that doesn’t have time to repaint her nails all the time this is truly a must have!
The second station featured the Nuance line of anti-aging skincare products. After explaining each of the products below I set the ladies loose in my bathroom to cleanse, tighten, and moisturize to their hearts’ content. It seemed they were as impressed with the serums and creams as I was! The Anti-Aging Smooth & Firm Elixir proved to be a favorite as you could feel your skin firm up as it dried. I should note that I purchased their cream cleanser at CVS before the party so we could get the full experience and sadly I wasn’t a fan. Since it is soap free I didn’t feel like it really got any dirt off and certainly doesn’t help remove makeup. If you enjoy a gentle cleanser then this would certainly be up your alley. I would only suggest using a makeup remover first. Other than that we also used the following products and loved them all.
- Nuance Salma Hayek Anti-Aging Smooth & Firm Elixir (MSRP $19.99)
- Nuance Salma Hayek AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Eye Treatment (MSRP $19.99)
- Nuance Salma Hayek AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Serum Concentrate (MSRP $19.99)
- Nuance Salma Hayek AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Cream (MSRP $19.99)
- Nuance Salma Hayek AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Lotion (MSRP $19.99)
Lastly the ladies got to test out some of the new makeup products. From eye shadow to mascara and lip gloss to blush Nuance has everything one would need to put together a full face. My personal favoite was the lip gloss. It wasn’t too tacky yet stayed put pretty well, even through my Starbucks drink. 😉 Each guest was able to walk away with a brand new full size foundation perfectly matched to her skin tone!
Each lady left with a goodie bag packed with products to take home and I think my goal in making them feel special was certainly met if not exceeded.
It was a perfect evening filled with wonderful appetizers, desserts, drinks, pampering products, and of course amazing women to share them with!
